Bible: Colossians 3:12-17
Exhortation to Unity and Love
3:12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, 1 kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 3:13 bearing with one another and forgiving 2 one another, if someone happens to have 3 a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others. 4 3:14 And to all these 5 virtues 6 add 7 love, which is the perfect bond. 8 3:15 Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart (for you were in fact called as one body 9 to this peace), and be thankful. 3:16 Let the word of Christ 10 dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace 11 in your hearts to God. 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
